Fluctuating needs in assessment and eligibility for the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

This guide provides an overview of key elements to consider in order to ensure any form of care assessment undertaken - for the adult requiring care and support or their carer with support needs - takes full account of the extent of fluctuating needs. These are needs which may not be apparent at the time of the assessment but have been an issue in the past and are likely to arise again in the future. The guide provides information and practical example on what practitioners need to do to established an accurate picture of fluctuating needs and includes a checklist of core duties for local authorities.

Care Act: assessment and eligibility: strengths-based approaches

Part of Care Act 2014

This guide summarises the process and the key elements to consider in relation to using a strengths-based approach. Sections provide information on what a strength-based approach is; the information practitioners need to carry out an assessment; using strength-based mapping; and key factors that make a good assessment. It also looks at how local authorities can extend the use of the strengths-based approach from assessments to meeting needs and provides a summary of core local authority duties in relation to conducting a strengths-based approach. It should be read in conjunction with the Care and Support (Assessment) Regulations 2014 and Chapter 6 of the 'Care and support statutory guidance', published by the Department of Health.

Care Act: assessment and eligibility: eligibility determination for the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

The guide summarises the process and key elements to consider in relation to making an eligibility determination for an adult requiring care. These include eligibility outcomes and criteria for both adults with care and support needs and carers with support needs. Useful resources, such as Skills for Care training material and a checklist of core duties for local authorities, are included.

Care Act training

Part of Training, learning and CPD for health and care

The Care Act 2014 introduces new responsibilities for local authorities and safeguarding adults’ boards. It also has major implications for care, health and housing providers, people who use services, carers and advocates. SCIE can develop, deliver and evaluate a training and learning programme tailored to your ADASS region, individual local authority or care provider. Many of our clients combine our Care Act training with our consultancy services.

Technology changing lives: how technology can support the goals of the Care Act

Reports on the key messages from a roundtable discussion on technology in social care and how it can help support the goals of the Care Act. The event was jointly hosted by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and the Department of Health and is one of a series of roundtable discussions exploring how to improve care and support at a time of growing demand, demographic change and financial constraint. Key messages from the event are reported, and include: the need to establish a national and local vision; use technology to solve a specific problem; the need to test and co-produce technological and digital solutions with people who use services and carers; the need to develop knowledge and skills in the social care sector; the importance of digital inclusion; the role of technology in data-sharing and decision-making. The report includes summaries of presentations from Jon Rouse, Keith Spink, Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, Jim Thomas, Madeline Starr and Charlotte Black. The roundtable has also used to help inform the thinking of the National Information Board.

Fluctuating needs: the Care Act 2014

Part of Care Act 2014

Under the Care Act 2014, assessments should reflect more accurately a comprehensive picture of people's needs - including how they change over time. In this film two people, one with mental health needs, the other with a physical disability, talk about their conditions, assessment, how their needs can fluctuate and the impact this has on the level of care and support they need. The film illustrates how the new requirement aims to recognise people as individuals by endorsing a much-needed degree of flexibility and responsive care, as well as offering valuable support for people with mental health and physical health conditions which may vary over time.
